Associate of Applied Science Degree Program in Massage Therapy

The Massage Therapy program at Sanford-Brown provides students with instruction in both practical and theoretical massage, anatomy, physiology, pathology, ethics, clinical practice and hygiene. The program offers training in therapeutic massage principles, hydrotherapy and allied therapeutic modalities, including massage techniques, the external application of water, heat, cold, topical preparations and mechanical devices.

The core curriculum is structured to include a lecture component and a clinical component. The final internship portion of the curriculum consists of supervised experiences in a clinical environment, which requires competencies, logs and evaluations completed by the student.

At the conclusion of the program, graduates who have diligently attended class and their internship, studied, and practiced their skills should have the skills to seek entry-level employment as massage therapists.

It is recommended that graduates take the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) certification exam. It is a nationally recognized certification that could enhance employment opportunities, and may be required to practice in a particular state. Certification requirements for taking and passing this examination are not controlled by Sanford-Brown but by outside agencies and are subject to change without notice.
